Are you studying Italian? Do you want to practice your listening? Here a very good website to do it
A friend sent me this link with books read aloud: http://www.radio3.rai.it/dl/portaleRadio/Programmi/Page-9fe19bce-1c27-4b63-b41e-2d7581d21374.html?set=ContentSet-c7cb6fbb-f3d4-472a-bcfd-49e75a03c8b5=undefined
I have downloaded TuneIn radio on my phone and using that app I can listen to aany radio, whenewer I am (obvioulsy, with internet connection).
I highly recommend it to you, you can browse radio stations by countries. I'm learning Italian, so I listen to Italian stations (not only RAI), but there are stations all around the world.
if you like italian stations, i'd like to suggest you my favorite radio. Here you can find a lot of podcast and a lot of programs that you can choose. http://www.radio24.ilsole24ore.com/ One of the most amazing is "La zanzara". Or you can choose, if you like a lot to read : "http://www.radio24.ilsole24ore.com/programma/cacciatore-libri/puntate" . Or from New York, there's Mario Platero ( still in radio 24 ) http://www.radio24.ilsole24ore.com/programma/america24/puntate I love this Radio a lot, it's innovative and full of imformations. Enjoy it! ;D
I think it would be good to underline the fact that "La zanzara" is a show where the speakers explicitly insult and curse (in a harsh way) the people who phone them. They say that's the point of the program and it seems this makes them quite popular.
If your aim is to learn Italian, I think you might consider listening to something else. You will pick up bad words anyway when you come to our country. ;)
Grazie, ma non vedo dove posso leggere il libro.... I only see where I can listen, and the title of the book.
Oh my guosh this is awesome! Been looking for something like this for ages :)
The RAI website is a very good source of radio programs but also videos. You can have a sneak peak and watch many popular shows and news broadcasts from our national television company.
Another website worth checking out, especially if you want to watch Italian comedy or fiction, is Mediaset: http://www.mediaset.it/
Keep in mind that many videos on this two websites are geo-restricted. You can actually unlock the full Mediaset library (and download the shows) using a simple free software that I developed. The same holds for some RAI programs, otherwise you will need a VPN.
If you need further instructions just ask. I am not posting the link to my software right now because I do not want to seem a spammer.
One of the options available there is "Gulliver's Travels" (i viaggi di Gulliver). But even though the first option is "leggi", that link does not open up anything to read.
A quick google search does bring up this downloadable pdf, however:
Now I haven't started to listen to the spoken translation, but I sort of doubt that the spoken parts will match the pdf link exactly. Nonetheless; it should be fairly close-- close enough that you could probably read along with the spoken parts, and be able to tell where the audio is at in the translation.
Thank you very much for the link. It is hard (at least for me) to find good sites to use, Again, thanks.
